3. Two things you want very badly at the moment:

5. Two things you did last night:

    Unfortunately, there are some brilliant movie directors that fade into the void due bad luck, amnesia, or a young person's stubborn contempt of anything that's considered "old". To paraphrase Mark Twain, "A classic is a movie that everybody knows about, but doesn't see."

    Hitchcock is one of those directors who has influenced everybody, either consciously or subconsciously, and it disgust me to see how little he's respected these days. Hell, Brian DePalma, Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for Hitchcock.

    Thanks for reminding people why Hitchcock still matters.

  3. So I suppose you wouldn't be up to an I Splotchy story meme, Mom

  4. WTF? I read your last "I Splotchy and left a comment there. I'm outraged that you did not make this a starting place for a book. That would be BOOK! What are you and Dcup doing with your lives? You should be writing this stuff. Why aren't we all rich published writers with movie deals in the works, getting interviewed all together on Opra. I get the first Pulitzer, then I'm okay with you guys getting yours too. What's wrong with us?


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
